with medicare.xxx i know that when paul ryan was picked as the republican vice president nominee. i don't think there is anybody more excited than were you about that. you gies have made it a living of paul ryan's budget and the proposal to turn medicare into a voucher program. am wondering though if you think that that line of attack on republicans has panned out as well as you thought it would give in the fact that the romney campaign has pointed to the medicare cuts obtained in the health care bill? >> yeah. the same that governor romney criticizes those but in the ryan budget by the way. as president clinton says it takes brass for to criticize for the thing you did. i will it will this you. i can give you evidence that those hor chicago misplaced pray or is by republicans voting to end medicare in order to fund tax cuts for millionaires that those priorities have helped democrats across the board. governor romney chose paul ryan as the running mate on august 11th. before august 11th if you took a look at the generic congressional ballot polling in the country, it was pretty much tied. it w
to with contraception, but you had the same strong catholic condemnation of congressman paul ryan's budget because it cuts to the poor. that goes back to it comes down to what is the issue versus a party. a lot of political folks do not understand that, that you might have folks who will be against you on this issue because it does not aligned with their fate, but will support you on something else because it does. >> you see the infighting on the catholic church. the nuns on the bus -- that empowered latinos who grew up with nuns around them. >> political laziness -- some of these issues on religious a lever, one inwilllever the process. if people can pull one or two levers, we will lose out on the bigger picture. we need to make sure we to evaluate what each party is doing and ask what does the bigger picture look like. that's not be swayed by one issue or another so we forfeit 23 months of lawmaking and reengage when the campaign hits the trail again. >> religion is as active in this campaign as it was four years ago, the big reason for that is mitt romney is reluctant to talk about his fate, a
. i know that when paul ryan was picked as the vice-presidential nominee, i don't think there's anybody that was more excited about that then you work and you have made a living out of all ryan's budget and turning medicare into a voucher program. i wonder if you think that line of attack on republicans has panned out as well as you thought it would come given the fact that the romney campaign has pointed that out. >> i can give you some empirical evidence that those perfectly misplaced priorities by republicans in voting to end medicare in order to fund tax cuts for millionaires, that those priorities have helped democrats across the board. governor romney chose paul ryan as his running mate on august 11. . before that, if you look at the polling in the country, it was pretty much tied. generics were really tight. maybe up one could after august 11, when governor romney decided to double down on the republican plan to and medicare to fund tax cuts for millionaires and big oil companies, it began to spread. instead of being in a neutral environment, we were up 1, 2 and 3. and
it "forewarned." with your help, paul ryan and i will get elected. [cheers and applause] you'll see enterprises a large and small decide to open their doors and expand. we will see the kind of recovery that america needs and deserves. i have confidence in the american people. i know that created and patriotic people in here. we love this country. there is no other nation on earth like it. we are an exceptional nation. i believe that. when the founders wrote that document known as the declaration of independence, they changed the world with insights that god gave us our rights and not the government. [cheers and applause] these are rights which we have. i love america. my confidence in the future comes from my passion for this country and for the people of this country. do you realize how unusual we are as a people? i do not know how it began, but it is here. it is in our hearts. some years ago when i was serving as governor of my state, the then president of israel came to boston. i happen to have a lunch with him in someone's apartment. someone said to him, "what you think about america's invo
on c- span. mitt romney and paul ryan will be in virginia for a rally this evening. it is a rally and country music concert with trace adkins. we will follow that with your phone calls as well. tennessee. elliott, welcome. >> how are you doing today? >> fine, thanks. >> i would like to say about the speech obama just made -- i think he has had is time for the four years, and it seems like we are worse off than we have ever been. he has had his time to prove to us that he could do it, but he has not prove anything to us. the people on social security today are starving to death and he has not help us one bit. as far as the war in iraq, he says he has ended that. if he finds our man over there is still getting killed, why does and he just bring our man at home and get them out of theire? sir, i thank you for your time, and god bless you. >> on our debate hub at c- span.org, we have broken a speech down into various clips. as the rally started this afternoon in denver, president obama responded to some of the comments of mitt romney. here is how it looked this afternoon. [video clip]
that paul ryan and i have a plan. it is not a repeat of the last four years because we cannot afford four more years of the last four years. it is an entirely different direction. it has five different parts. number one, we will take advantage of our energy, coal, gas, oil, nuclear. the president has cut in half the number of permits and licenses on federal lands and in federal waters. i will double them. the president has made it virtually impossible to build a coal industry in this country. we have a lot of coal and i want to use it. the want thet w keystone pipeline. i will get us that oil from canada. i will open up more trade. we can trade on a fair basis with people around the world. but when people steal our jobs and trade practices as a china has, i will hold them accountable. we cannot let our jobs get stolen unfairly. i want to make sure the people have the skills that they need to succeed. i want training programs that prepare people for the jobs of today. right now have 47 different federal training programs reporting to eight different agencies. think of the overhead and the
for tax cuts. that is what paul ryan proposes. do not boo. vote. or we can do what i propose -- recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, focus on early childhood education, provide job training for 2 million workers at community colleges, cut the growth of tuition costs in half, so you guys are not loaded up with that when you graduate. -- debt when you graduate. that is something we can do. i do not just talk the talk. i walk the block. -- walk the walk. under the student loan program, we cut out the middleman and gave the money directly to students. across the country, here we are getting better deals on programs, keeping rates low -- on pell grants, keeping rates low. we can meet these goals together. you can choose a better future for america. i want to use the money we are saving for ending the war is in iraq and afghanistan and use that to pay down our debt, but also put people to work rebuilding our roads and our bridges. governor romney said it was tragic to end the war in iraq. i disagree. i think bringing our troops home to their families was the right thing to do. if he had
. but whey don't want to do is what my opponent says he embraces the ryan budget. what does the ryan budget do? it ends medicare, makes it a voucher. dramatically cuts assisttons education in our country. as someone who grew up poor, the first of my family to go to college, i want pell grants to be out there and keeping student interest loan low so every child can achieve an education. it is important to do this tpwh a balance way for middle class interest. >> when i'm there we're going to have a budget that i will work on and advocate for and compromise along the way without sacrificing principle with my colleagues. you talk about congressman ryan, it's more of the same. it's the other guy's fault. you've been there a long time. your party has been the majority in the senate for a long time, i think your entire term. i have some very specific plans. we have discipline here in new jersey. it's not always pretty but when we deal with our state budget we do what we need to do. we don't get to print money so we work hard and we have in the last few years to make things right. we now spend 24%
't like when he says wait until after the election before he tells us anything. ryan did the same thing this past sunday on the talk shows. he was asked to go more into specifics on the tax exemption. he said most people would not understand the math. how about giving me the arithmetic? host: what are you looking for tomorrow? caller: i would like to see how romney will spin his comments about the 40% of americans being freeloaders. my dad was a world war ii veteran. when he came back, he defended of the gi bill for all home loans. i guess he would be a freeloader according to romney. host: let's look at an article -- that sometimes. an independent caller in wisconsin, bill. caller: i am planning on watching tomorrow night. there's a lot of questions that i would be asking if i were there, of both of them. why have the democrats nor the republicans looked at our social security, which is going under? what has happened to all the ious that they have taken money from social security? when are the democrats and republicans going to decide to have to pay all of these back? that's the reason
analyze the tax reform plan contained in the house republican budget offered by paul ryan. it found that in order to provide a lower top rate of 25% for high-income taxpayers in a way that does not add to the deficit, the elimination of expenditures would result in a $2,681 annual tax increase for a married couple with joint income of $100,000. that is unacceptable. the non-partisan tax policy center reached of the same conclusion about a similar plan promising a 20% across-the-board tax cut. under such a plan, the center said the average household with children earning a to a thousand dollars or less would face an effective tax increase of $2,041. that is very similar. there's a lesson to absorb from the study. the where tax reform plans that only gets specific about what top rate they want to lock in. is also generally true that the lower the rate that gets promised, the fewer the details that get provided about the rest of their plan. simpson balls promised the top rate between 23% and 29% but take a hard look at how this would be accomplished. they presented an illustrated plan
later mitt romney campaigns and that virginia along with his running mate paul ryan. coverage begins at 6:45 eastern. today's washington journal is about last night's debate with your calls. host: the candidates have spoken and the pundits have reacted. now it is your turn to way and on the first presidential debate of campaign 2012. the next three hours are devoted to hearing your views of last night's debate in denver. you can see the numbers on your screen. if you are a romney supporter -- please allow 30 days between your calls. you can also send us a tweet. we are using a different address this morning. that is the hashta we are using this morning. you can also make a comment on our facebook page or send us an e-mail. we want to get your reactions to what you think of the debate. we want to start off by showing you the huffington post this morning. here it is, "romney wins the night." this is from "the hill" newspaper. in "the hill" again -- that is from "the hill." here is "politico." that is from "politico." time to hear from you. the first presidential debate is over.
campaigning in iowa. mitt romney and his campaign vice president paul ryan are campaigning together today in virginia. while in denver for last night's debate, we talked with some students about their views on the election. >> the issue for me has to do with women's rights. and rights for all women, not just wealthy women. and the supreme court will go a long way to make sure that those are secured for generations to come. >> i was interested in the economy. >> the biggest issue for me is getting a job after i'm done for school. i pay $55,000 a year to come here. i need a job to pay for that. >> it's important to me to make sure i am able to get a job. >> there are many issues we need to focus on. >> video-based social media service similar to a tweet. last night's debate is the most tweeted event in history, topping this year's republican and democratic conventions. a look at last night's debate. the debate was held at the university of denver. it was spoke focusing on domestic policy issues. we want to show you reaction from the candidates during the debate. it's about an hour and a hal
the ryan budget. i didn't think it protected medicare enough. i worked across the aisle. i were to build a caucused with a liberal democratso the specific purposes of three for nutrition, education and early childhood and development. that's why i suggest when you vote with barack obama 95% of the time, you can suggest that you're bucking the president, when you vote for it. everybody in menton and believes in that position, and so do i., the walls. -- wolves. ultimately under the decisions that mattered most, on things like a failed healthcare reform, on a failed stimulus and on energy policy voting for cap and trade, my opponent has voted for barack obama not bucking his own party, not showing the independence necessary to try and build a more secure future for the people of montana. he stands more with barack obama, i stand more with the people of montana. >> totally ridiculous. i'm going to tell you the fact is if you look at the record, for the last 18 months, the congressman wanted to run against barack obama. they try to morphed me into barack obama. barack obama don't want to see
by congressman ryan, your running mate. we would get a voucher to seniors. -- we would give a venture to seniors. they could go out in the private -- wycombe -- we would give a voucher to seniors and they could go out in the private marketplace and buy their own health insurance. the problem is that because the voucher would not necessarily keep up with health-care inflation, this would cost the average senior about $16,000 per -- $6,000 per year. year, but governor romney has said is he will maintain traditional medicare alongside it. there is still a problem. those insurance companies are clever about figuring out who are the younger and healthier seniors. they recruit them, leaving the older, sicker seniors in medicare. every health-care economist as said overtime, the traditional medicare system will collapse. you have people, like my grandmother, at the mercy of the private insurance system when they are most in need of decent health care. i do not think vouchers are the right way to go. this is not only my opinion. aarp thinks the savings we obtained from medicare bolstered the system, len
supports the exact same thing. they are accounted for in the ryan but it -$200 million more. -- but minus $200 million more. these are the things are problematic in terms of the policy debate. the super pacs make it worse for you have individuals who have personal opinions they are trying to force upon people. we would be better off with the candidates. i am happy to be a part of the super pacs and defend barack obama because he's the best and next president of the united states. and that is phenomenal. but do i wish this did not have to be? yes, i did. experience -- they work just fine. while the voters say they may not be very happy with tax boater funded campaigns, it is gone pretty smoothly. the rhetoric -- the rhetoric does not match the reality at the end of the day. more likely we will see changes to the loss and the next incarnation a super pacs. [applause] take you very much for coming. vote yes on ballot 1, to invest money in higher education facilities which we have not done in new jersey for almost a quarter of a century. thank you very much for tonight. [laughter] [applause]
of protecting the solvency of the program. on medicare, george allen supports the ryan budget that would turn medicare into a voucher program and push costs onto the seniors. i propose a senior savings costs, for example ending the prescription -- that we get. that would save us without jeopardize in the benefit of all. >> mr. allen, to ask both of you to take one minute to respond to tim kaine's assocation about medicare and to support the ryan budget? >> what i support is preserving medicare. both are programs that people have worked through for their lives. some of the things that can be done in social security also have to be done in my view. that is a gradual increase in the retirement age and eligibility. not for those were 50 and older, but those were under 50. there is also over $50 billion of fraudulent payments. that ought to go to medicare. the one thing that should not be done is what tim kaine supports. what he said previously is that obamacare would be great for democrats. the seniors that i have heard from to not think it is at all grade that over $700 million is being taken ou
collection. which does not sound interesting as it is, but mitt romney picked paul ryan and the expectation among supporters would -- was that this would be a chance for him to outline a campaign with a whole set of policy decisions that would set him apart from the president, but in the past few weeks we have seen the campaign dynamics not changed that much. this is just one more issue on which the republicans are trying to be the president. host: is mitt romney going to focus more on what the president is doing wrong, or more on his own plan? caller: based on the release extroverts -- exurbs of the speech, it looks like they're trying to follow up on obama. there is not a huge gap there and the question for the president was from a couple of months ago, clearly the mitt romney campaign knows that there is more time to make some headway there. there is always the risk that by focusing on this before the vice presidential debate, even as both sides think that the economy is a top issue, you run into a risk of focusing on too many items as opposed to jobs and economic issues. host: there wil

to how he will fix the economy. use of paul ryan over the weekend talking about -- you saw paul ryan over the weekend talking about how he does not have time to explain the numbers in his budget. people want that explanation and are creeping back from the governor. guest: given the constraints of the debate format, they will not give chapter and verse from the town and its parent -- from the candidates. this is more important for mitt romney. he benefits as a challenger from standing on the same stage as the incumbent president of the united states, but there is a greater burden to convince the wavering voters, the 12 or 14 people that i've not made up their minds in this election. host: post-debate spin, howard kurtz, how important is that, and how social media plays a more important role? guest: the post-debate spin, i think it is critical, as people watched the debate, but they can make up their own mind, but that is an hour and half. what you get for the next several days or a week are the clips that are replayed, the chair by the commentators. you mentioned the al gore eye- rolling t
in the wake of paul ryan's vp selection. and the floor policy -- there was a spike and mitt romney went abroad -- the foreign policy, there was a spike when mitt romney went abroad. i believe aj invited us here and our job is to keep everyone here on the panel on this. >> think you're a very interesting. as our panelists make their presentation, maybe it least two items i thought would be interested to adjust -- the very interesting article and book out now by sasha eisenberg about the fact that the press cannot keep up with political consultants and social that parking experts. reporters basically are way behind the curve in this campaign. we think that is an interesting topic to take a look at. as well as the fact that in a wave of reporters, my impression is it looks like both candidates have succeeded for the most part in talking over the press, especially the traveling press, and making them almost irrelevant to the campaign. let us start off with amy davidson. >> can everybody hear me? i will start by addressing what he does talk about a little bit. even in the title of the panel, is thi

the plan authored by paul ryan. it found in order to provide a lower top rate of 25% for high income taxpayers in a way that doesn't add to the deficit, the elimination of expenditures would result in a $2,081 annual tax increase for a married couple of $100,000. that's not acceptable. the nonpartisan tax center reached a similar conclusion, promising a 20% across the board tax cut. the average household with children earning $200,000 or less would face an effective tax increase of $2041, very similar numbers. there is a lesson to absorb from these studies. be aware tax reform plans that only get specific about what top rate they want to lock in. it's also generally true that the lower the rate that gets promised, the fewer the details that get provided about the rest of their plan. simpson balls promised the top rate between 23% and 29% but take a hard look at how this would be accomplished. they presented an illustrated plan with 28% paid for by deep cut by deep cuts and reduction. the plan did raise significant revenue. it would generally help reduce our deficit but it raised taxe
. whoever is budget director, paul ryan as vice president, and whoever is the treasury secretary, i would guess twice a day at the white house meeting with senior white house staff. then there would be the rest of the obama administration were i would hope that would be -- a whole bunch of other things could be done in departments that need to be improved from a policy point of view. my sense is that the romney people are very focused on that first six-nine months. if i were advising romney, i would say put them all at the white house, omb, and treasury at the beginning. they need the best, most experienced people to really make those decisions early and to work with congress. i would get a couple people who have served our are very familiar with congress. obviously cannot just dictate to congress. they will need to make that step happen very fast. a very strong white house chief of staff and budget director. it was impressive what they did. being able to get that stuff through, we look at history in retrospect, the fact that reagan did it was pretty startling. >> governor romney is also
not only from paul ryan but also it came from bill clinton's chief of staff. this is an idea that has been around a long time. let's see if we can get competition into the medicare world so people can get the choice of different plans, better quality. i believe in a competition. >> first of all, every study has shown medicare has lowered administrative costs, which is why seniors are generally pretty happy with it. private insurers have to make a profit. there is nothing wrong with that, that is what they do. you have higher administrative costs, plus profit on top of that, and if you are going to save any money through what gov. romney is proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere. when you move to a voucher system, you are putting seniors at the mercy of those programs. over time if traditional medicare has decayed or fallen apart, then they are stopped. this is the reason why aarp has said your plan would weaken medicare substantially. that is why they were supportive of the approach that we took. we do have to lower the cost of health care, not just in
was running against a spectacular republican, jack ryan, like a mitt romney of illinois. at into would begin obama. once again, the obama campaign digs up child custody records. he had been married to someone from star trek. and she had made allegations that he to occur to sex clubs. not that they entered. she said no. but he had asked her to go. still, the republicans demanded that he withdraw. and obama ran against someone else. obama has not faced a real opponent. what are they going to get -- i mean, we have a mormon who's roughest drink is a glass of chocolate milk. this will be tough for the obama team to crack. once he becomes president, mitt romney is exactly what the country needs. host: what you think the next weeks will be like? guest: it is absolute hysteria and screams of lies. i have been promoting the book. on mitt romney watching to cut taxes on the rich. those are estimates made by a liberal tax group. the liberal tax purpose taken that estimate back. the obama campaign was running ads on that, how he ruwants to cut the tax rates. he said the overnight, no i am not cutting t

't need to privatize it. linda mcmahon said she would entertain paul ryan's plan to privatize medicare. that's the way she would look at it. i will not. i will fight privatization of medicare with every breath i have because, to your question -- if medicare or medicaid becomes privatized and is being run by health-care insurance companies, then the decisions that are made will be what is in their best interest. what makes their bottom line better, not what protect s connecticut's seniors, not what connects those families trying to come to a very tough decision. >> should government have our role in and of life health-care and the spending that goes with that? >> the way to do this is to simply not empower health insurance bureaucrats. the way to do is to have families deep in consultation with physicians about the best course of action is either direction and their choice at the end of life.
